Brackets for Good Competition
The Catch the Stars Foundation will be participating in this year’s Brackets for Good challenge, a competitive fundraising tournament for nonprofit organizations to participate in at no cost. Brackets For Good is an Indianapolis, IN based 501(c)3 charitable organization focused on activating new donors and increasing awareness for other nonprofits through competitive online fundraising. Starting in 2011, Brackets for Good had enlisted 8 non profits and through the past 4 years has grown to multiple cities and over 100 non profits competing for the $10,000 prize. The challenge begins on February 27th and ends April 3rd. Every week our goal is to beat out our competitor, however we need your help!
We are setting an ambitious and aggressive goal of $100,000 raised during this campaign and we need each person to devote the time and effort to be accountable for their part. We will be launching a “$10 for 10 years” campaign celebrating the Catch the Stars Foundation’s 10 years of life changing service to youth. To help us reach our goal go to donate now, fill out the online form, select Brackets for Good as the event and give your donation. You will immediately receive a tax deductions email for your donation. Share your giving on our Facebook page and with your friends as we seek to raise $100,000 to empower our youth to achieve their dreams.
